't touch. this political negligence suggests that obama has chosen to ignore negative budget projections, credit downgrades, falling revenues and perpetual increases in mandatory spending. instead, the president is teeing up partisan legislative battles with republicans in hopes of -- but as a measurement of the president's seriousness, his second inaugural address can only be seen as a grand failure that missed yet another historic opportunity to call americans together in the name of shared sacrifice. and richard haass, there is another opportunity, which would be the state of the union which i'm sort of banking on. >> traditionally inaugurals are the poetry, and then the state of the union becomes the prose. and the president did not prepare for educate the american people about some of the tough decisions to come, particularly on medicare and medicaid. so the real question going forward for the state of the union is whether he essentially addresses that. and whether he -- because we've still got more than, i think, more than $2 trillion in serious cuts to be made to entitlements over
stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrews. >> sounds familiar, doesn't it? 2008, maybe? >> this is very personal for me. it's not just political. it is not just public. i see what is happening. we have to reverse it. >> she's got a script. >> what is wrong with that? she stood next to caskets and pick on her for a lot of things but not that. >> the point is she cried, and a couple hours later won the new hampshire primary, she's painted as a victim and it works and if she runs which she wants to, i don't think we're done with hillary clinton. >> e inference, you are saying she did it for political reasons and i don't believe that for a second. >> the big question is, if she wins the white house it means bill is back in the white house, which means break out the plastic covering for the furniture. >> you are right, bob the clintons -- >> no! >> don't do anything for political reasons, you are right. >> whatever. >> coming up, a romance is brewing between facebook founder mark sdmrzuckerberg and new jer governor chris christie.
've got rick perry and jan brewer and others on there, then they have no political incentive to ever say the border is secure. the fact is, when president bush was reelected in 2004, there were 10,000 border patrol agents along the border. today with president obama, there are 21,000. no president in american history has committed as many resources and as much manpower to securing the border as this president has, so those measurements need to be objective and they can't be left to the subjective whims of folks who don't have a political incentive to say the border is secure. >> before we let you go, congressman, we know democrats are mobilizing efforts to turn texas blue. what do you think of those efforts? are we getting closer to cobalt? >> i think we are. i think the republican party in texas especially, quite frankly, has gone off the rails. you have the hard right that now controls the party in texas as their elected leaders, so there are many of us working very hard who believe that the interests and the values of everyday texans are not served by the people, by the republicans in
. i think he is sincere in all this, but he is out there with a dog of an issue politically. he wants to run in 2016 and he is stuck doing this while hillary clinton is going to cohost 60 minutes with barack obama this sunday. i am sure he is very bitter about that. jon: that is why we have the vice president giving helpful device that if you really want to protect yourself, go buy a shotgun. that way he can work both sides of the issue -- push for gun control, but still be an advocate for guns? >> it's not really great advice. while i think a shotgun is good, it's also really good at killing the innocent bystander next to the person raking into your house. the whole thing is that joe biden knows that he can be anti-gun. the problem is that this administration, for good reasons or bad, they have zero credibility with the gun rights community. they believe that dianne feinstein and barack obama wants to take away guns. they believe that in their bones. this legislation is so full of loopholes and wants to lay down a predicate to make it easier down the road to check gun owners and sue
's reelection campaign. zuckerberg has never made a political campaign donation and openly discussed politics. he did donate $100 million to knee newark schools and supports christie's education reforms. >> barbosa went to a president dinner president obama. >> finally, earlier this week, we talked about the new board first fees being instituted by southwest airlines known for not charging fees like bag fees. on that point, ceo of the airline said yesterday, never say never. gary kelly said they have no plans to institute bag fees but if customers say they would prefer to have extra fees rather than everything being bundled in the ticket us price, they could institute bag fees in the future. >> my advice is keep it the way it is don't fix what ain't broke. >> that might be their biggest selling point. >> there is a reason why every flight is full. it's good service. they don't put the extra stupid fees on there. president obama on mopped, again, i call it a liberal manifesto. my new column about the president's inaugural address is up on the website. he point
support. there is no political ideology that finds this cruel loss of life acceptable. i was incredibly pleased to see president obama include as part of his comprehensive plan to prevent gun violence a bill i first introduced in 2009 called the gun trafficking prevention act which would be the first federal law to define gun trafficking as a federal crime and will prevent guns from being moved into the hands of criminals. we have thousands of laws but none of them are directly focused on preventing someone from driving from one state to another state with a load of guns in the back of a truck that they can sell directly to criminals. it's shocking to me as a mother. it's shocking to me as a lawmaker but this is something we can actually fix. over the past three years more than 33,000 guns used in violence crimes showed signs of black market trafficking, 4 oh 20,000 firearms were stolen and thousands of guns with obliterated serial numbers were recovered by law enforcement. so while law enforcement is working over time to track down those who traffic these weapons, current law restricts
